I just had my first kids and it was hard putting the stroller in the trunk w/ A HUGE box in there.... so I decide to put them on the side and my amp down below (I work for my dad'* company and he has AAA that will practically tow you anywhere)

that was my first thought thought exactly. i would strongly suggest a design more freindly to air flow. to allow heat dissipation

Air is important, maybe put some fans circulating air. Also make sure that your trunk does not leak, because if it leaks any water, that'* the place it is going to collect.
